A group of protesters is scheduled to meet at tonight’s baseball game in Seattle. The Mariners are playing the Boston Red Soxs. The display is to draw attention to the location of the 2011 All-Star Game. If Arizona SB 1070 goes into effect, the call is for major league baseball to boycott the next All-Star game scheduled for Arizona.
“Arizona’s extreme immigration law is an invitation to racial profiling and harassment of Arizona residents and anybody who visits the state, including MLB and Seattle Mariners players, their families and fans,” said a spokesperson for Washington Community Action Network, one organization coordinating the Saturday demonstration.
Several baseball players have already said they will not play at the 2011 All-Star game if it is held in Arizona.
